    IDK how likely it would be that they would agree to take on the job, but, hey, if they want it, I'll gladly hand it to them.
    Were this true, you wouldn't have sought out the job on 2, count them, 2 separate sites. You are fully aware that white flame would not take the job that way. He has integrity.

    You could resign though, if it really means as little to you as you seem to want to imply. That way, Mike could offer the position to whiteflame.

    But we already know you won't do that.

    Yes, they get a pass. Only words that fit the hate speech category are banned. So pretty much all profanity. I don't really care if you censor the f-word.
    Omg can it be?

    I never sought to be a mod on DDO. I ran for site President, which is certainly not the same. And I don't really see your point about whiteflame. There's no dishonor in expressing interest in a job I'd be happy to relinquish to him. I am not as wedded to this role as you might think, and I'd welcome whiteflame taking it over if he desired. 

    I choose not to resign not because I am wedded to the role, but because there are few people who I think could and would do it. I was not my first choice for this job (I was my third or fourth), though I think myself reasonably qualified and capable. Whiteflame and Airmax I trust totally to do the job right, which is why they, in particular, are ones I'd be happy to see in the role before me.

    Ha Ha.

    If I write tran#y you'll no exactly what I mean.

    And when I was a kid we did actually refer to a radio receiving device as a tran#y.

    And stupidity will probably be the downfall of mankind.

    You tried for mod. You had to settle for president. I was there. President carried no power, which is why you insinuated yourself into "mod consultation" there and brag about it here.

    There's no dishonor in expressing interest in a job I'd be happy to relinquish to him.
    As there are no stupid people here, I do not need to point out the disingenuousness of that comment.

    I choose not to resign ...... because there are few people who I think could and would do it. 
    Anyone who knew you knew you would do it, and there is a good reason few think you can do it.

    I choose not to resign not because I am wedded to the role, ....

    Uh huh.

    I never did try for mod. Airmax consulted with all Presidents about moderation issues, myself included. There was no insinuation to speak of. And, I hardly brag; it was you who brought it up here, let's not forget. You talk about it far more than I do.

    I am indeed moderator, though if Airmax or Whiteflame ever wanted the job, I'd happily hand it over to them.
    What.

    Would we get the same absentee airmax who never enforces any rules and lets anyone get away with anything. Cuz that's alarming. I'm having like mild panic feelz right now.

    Or would we get a different airmax on DART because we have an active site dev who will not abandon him to run the place all by himself with limited powers, and this will sort of wash away the coating of bitterness and restore airmax to a bright-eyed active moderator again (I'm assuming he once was one).

    I need to know this, this shit is important.

    I can't answer that question. And unless and until Max volunteers, it's rather a moot point. I will continue to be moderator, and am not expecting to be replaced for the foreseeable future.

    Yeah. Did Mike consult you too?

    Untrue sir. You brought it up in reply to a question by someone else about your qualifications for mod. You actually have none.

    Yeah. The whole story about what grounds your smug confidence rests on will come out one day. I just hope Mike isn't the worse for it.

    I was just asking because it looked like someone was planning to be a go-between and convince airmax to accept the job.

    Can you explain to me why airmax would just automatically be given a mod seat? And can you just give your seat away to someone else, or does that decision have to go through Mike first?

    I'd imagine that there's not really anything formal and everything would have to go through Mike because, as a practical matter, he controls the website.

    Yeah, nobody is getting the mod position automatically, not only there is no "button" for that, nor it's a process that should go blindly and behind people's back.

    Tell that to your head mod, because he's the one saying otherwise.

    ”The answer is you cannot use the n-word but you can debate "that Black Americans have lower average IQs than white Americans and at least a few of those IQ points can be attributed to genetics."

    What if I wanted to debate that all or most of the black/white IQ gap is caused by genetics? I’m hoping this is just odd wording and you could debate something like that.

    I don't think he meant that the process would be automatic.  Anyway, the bottom line is that I promise that the process of changing mods, if it happens for some reason, will be handled properly, it definitely won't be a surprise for the people here.

    Yes, you can 100% debate something like that.

    I'll get to the other posts in this thread later--not enough time.

    I heard a word that rhymes with granny and starts wit a T is currently banned. Does anyone have an up to date banned words list 
    It is tricky that one Wylted.  As I have found out for myself. 

    I was warned about using the extremely vulgar and offensive words - stupid – and backward -.

    I had the audacity to ask someone if they were “stupid” and I also had the cold never to ask someone if they were “backward”. I simply cannot imagine the permanent irreparable and psychological damage I must have caused, but I was warned via PM . But I have found in life that someone who acts or performs in a stupid manner are usually called  stupid and or backward. I suppose we have so many stupid people and backward people using the internet that it were only a matter of time before word censoring became part and parcel. It is hard not to offend anyone these days. 

    I was told that these words  constitute personal attacks”.
     
     
     I was also warned against  warning someone that I would report them if they insisted on disruptive behaviour on my thread?
     
    Actually the words used in the warning was
    threatening to report someone”  Threatening!!!!!!??????
     
     To which was added that it

    “is entirely unacceptable and viewed extremely unfavourably by moderation”. 

    So to give someone a friendly warning that you will report them is taboo also.

    The only mod I nominated was Tejretics, to help with voting, and I cleared that with Mike in advance of making any kind of formal appointment. Had Mike said "no," I obviously would have complied.

    Untrue sir. You brought it up in reply to a question by someone else about your qualifications for mod. You actually have none.
    I brought that up only once--hardly bragging--and in the context of answering a question about my qualifications for the position. My role as DDO President, when I worked occasionally with Max, was my primary relevant experience, and so I cited that. Contorting that into bragging is laughable, ethang.
